It seems that the new Icom 9700 has created a huge surge of interest. Lots of pre-orders for this high performance 2/432/1296 radio.
If it is as successful as it's hf/6m twin, there will be LOTS of older VHF/UHF radios on the market.

Rob Sherwood has already sold his trusty Icom 275H in anticipation of the 9700.

He has 2 7300s.

Yes Clayton, the 9700 has the despised (by only you) touch screen.
Horror of horrors... ha ha

Does anyone have a confirmed US price yet?  Based on a post on my club reflector, it would appear that the initial price is more than what has been floated here.

"....a while back, I sent a $50 deposit to DX Engineering to reserve this new rig which is now FCC approved, but decided at $2100 I won't be purchasing it....."

If that price is true, it would be a few hundred dollars more than what has been speculated based on the European price with VAT.

Price is $2099.95 from dealers like HRO, Universal Radio, and Gigaparts. DX Engineering wants $2098.99 for it. Prices went up on web sites Friday. BTW no FCC certification is required for the IC-9700, as it only covers the 3 ham bands.

Out of stock already, but I think that price is closer to what was being discussed in previous threads.

Nobody has them in stock in the US yet, but stores are taking orders. R&L is undercutting the other stores on the price right now, but perhaps we can use that for price-matching at other stores.

I was just notified by DX Engineering that I can expect my 9700 on 04/08/2019, before my taxes are due!

Sweet. Hope you let us know what you think once you've had time to put it through its paces.

HRO called me yesterday, my 9700 came in.

I took a road trip and picked it up, though I won't be able to install it until tonight or tomorrow.
